Focus on Brook Farm II Photo Exhibition

February 15-March 11, 2017

Brookline Bank, 1808 Centre St. (Roche Bros. Plaza), West Roxbury


Last October, New Brook Farm welcomed photographers to the Brook Farm Historic Site and invited them to send us their best photos. We chose twelve of our favorites for our second annual Focus on Brook Farm exhibition. Please stop by the Brookline Bank and see them. You’ll be impressed! View the photo gallery here.

Congratulations to the participating photographers: Sally Barkan, Alison Bell, Daria Casinelli, Christoph Gervais, Will Holton, Eileen McEnaney, Julia Tuttle, and Nancy Young.

We are recognizing the photographers at a reception on Sunday, March 12 at 6 p.m., downstairs at West on Centre. Please join us for complimentary hors d’oeuvres and soft drinks, cash bar, a slide show and brief presentation, and a chance to relax and socialize with our Brook Farm friends.  If you can attend, RSVP to or call Gretchen O’Neill, 617-694-6407. Please reply by Friday, March 3. No walk-ins, please.

Special thanks to:

  • Professional photographer Christoph Gervais for selecting the photos in the exhibit, printing the images, and providing sage advice throughout.
  • Brookline Bank, West Roxbury, for generously hosting the exhibit.

New Brook Farm (NBF) invites you to shed a few calories and take in the scenery and fresh air at the Brook Farm Historic Site. Join us for a walk (weather permitting) and cup of cider on the day after Thanksgiving. There’s no program, but our board members will be happy to answer your questions about the property and its fascinating history as a utopian commune, Civil War encampment, and orphanage. We will meet at the print shop (the white building) at 1 p.m.
More information: or 617-694-6407 (Gretchen O’Neill)
